It’s crunch time for Rosler


Brentford boss Uwe Rosler said his side is facing a "week of truth" after stretching their unbeaten run to five games with a 2-1 home succes over Carlisle.

The Bees go into crunch promotion clashes with Preston, Swindon and Sheffield United on the back of a hard-fought win.

Brentford goalkeeper Simon Moore was the hero with a late penalty save to deny Joe Garner with 15 minutes remaining, while goals from Jonathan Douglas and Paul Hayes sealed the points, either side of a consolation from United hitman Garner.

Rosler said: “We are now moving into our week of truth when we face some of the top sides.

“Last season I don’t think we beat any of the sides at the top, but this time we have and we have a lot more quality to compete than we did.”

Rosler believes his side have learned fast from previous games where they have let leads slip and added: “We are much better at managing games now and I was pleased with the history of that game.”
